There are a lot of great things about the 1980’s, like the music, the technology, the people born in that decade (including Daniel plus Lauren born in 1981), and don’t forget the clothes especially, Negris LeBrum did the 80’s true justice on Sunday, February 9 at New York Fashion Week with their new Sunset collection that goes hand in hand with the fall/ winter 2020 season.

The Negris LeBrum Sunset collection represents the brand’s long-standing usage of black as the primary color and infusing black gold hues like the descent of the sun below a horizon.

The collection is inspired by the vibes of the 80’s, hairstyles and makeup help set the tone for this collection by fusing the style of Prince from “Purple Rain” and David Bowie, it’s about sex appeal and being fierce on the runway.

Kristin Cavallari finally reunites with Audrina Patridge & Heidi Montag on ‘Very Cavallari’

Homecoming In The Music City

Nashville ,Tennessee is known historically for being a country music mecca of the world, crossover acts like Taylor Swift, Shania Twain, and Kasey Musgraves give Nashville even more reason to visit, plus Nashville has seen unprecedented growth with its population, making downtown a surprisingly hot destination, where Kristin Cavallari set up shop for Uncommon James, and where Thursday’s episode of “Very Cavallari” carried the long-awaited “Hills” reunion of Audrina Patridge and Heidi Montag with their former second chief-in-command after OG, Lauren Conrad, left.

Kristin, Audrina, and Heidi all caught up while reflecting back on their time on “The Hills”, the trio even went partying in the music city after reuniting for awhile, but it was Kristin’s recent friendship demise with Kelly Henderson that got Audrina and Heidi talking, Audrina met up with one of Kelly’s friends saying that Kelly only did “Very Cavallari” as a favor to Kristin for 2 seasons, but Kristin argues that it gave Kelly a boost in her career because of it.

Up and onward with love, it starts with Justin and Scoot exploring their future, talking to a love therapist on what the next steps should be, Justin discovers that it’s okay to be cheesy when it comes to love, because it’s the biggest, the only, and most important thing you have when you’re in love with someone you’ve been seeing for awhile now.

Love continues on with Brittany and PJ taking their dating to the next level, after putting together a just-delivered futon, and talking things over, Brittany and PJ make it official becoming boyfriend and girlfriend.

Review: Nightfood Ice Cream gives you late night cravings, and puts you to sleep

Enjoy, Then Snooze

Nightfood gave me the opportunity to review an ice cream of theirs that’s proven not only popular, but the main objective here is Nightfood is formulated to help you sleep better, a health conscious individual like Daniel plus Lauren who’s always hitting the weights and balancing their macros couldn’t wait to take on Nightfood, and was pleasantly surprised by the balance of carbohydrates, fats, and protein, plus their unique flavors.

My flavor last night obviously was milk and cookie dough, right around 10:35 p.m. EST as yours truly finally settled down and needed to balance their carbohydrates with protein and fat for the day, yours truly committed to just having half a pint, but ended up eating the whole thing, and guess what happened after eating the pint, nothing, what was missing was being obnoxiously full after a pint of typical ice cream before bed, or sugared up before bed, or feeling a super-induced coma which would lead to bad, shorten sleep later on in the night, plus a belly turned upside down.

Along with the lack of fullness after eating a whole pint of Nightfood, yours truly 25 to 30 minutes in around 11:15 p.m. EST got tired, sleepy, and ready for a full night’s sleep (which did happen by the way in the realm of 6 to 7 hours), not even the allure of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” could keep my sleep at bay, it was light’s out at 11:40 p.m. EST.

This morning felt real good waking up, after 6 to 7 hours of sleeping all night and barely waking up once during it, sleeping nearly 6 hours did it, but another hour leading up to around 6:40 a.m. EST sealed the deal, and finally getting up after 7 a.m. EST got my day off right, and my day so far is pretty good and well-rested.

It’s not only the sleep that yours truly just got that makes Nightfood Ice Cream good, but it’s the balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fat in an excellent way that excites Daniel plus Lauren the most, it’s far less sugar per serving, only 360 calories for an entire pint, more fiber, added minerals and digestive additives, and no artificial sweeteners or erythriol normally found in regular ice cream.

Every ingredient found in Nightfood lives up to being that late-night food that won’t hurt your short-term or long-term goals, so you could eat the whole thing, plus it helps you sleep, and a full night too.

Lauren Conrad’s denim LC Lauren Conrad 2020 trends of right now

Courtesy: Kohl’s

Wear What’s Hot

With each new year brings new trends, trends in health, exercise, hangouts, and clothing styles, but 2020 has barely started, let alone nowhere near a quarter of the way ending, so let’s start easy with one trend that Lauren Conrad loves, it’s denim, a fresh go to style for the last one to two years, which Lauren devotes wholeheartedly to today with help from her LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl’s.

It’s always good to extend your reach for your love of denim beyond the status quo of denim jackets, so Lauren places special love on cropped wide leg jeans that are extremely comfortable, and can be worn with anything, the big win so far in 2020 even beyond the democratic primary are flared denim jeans which Lauren loves because flared denim have the ability to enhance anyone style in a heartbeat, and rise above the rest with high rise denim jeans that flatter any body type while great with cropped sweaters or a French tuck.

Just being a mom is an extremely hard and stressful task, so you need every comfort possible, which is why mom denim jeans will always be the piece to rely on that are stylish with their loose fit and straight leg, and the last trend today is non-denim, coming in luxe and cozy fabrics like velvet and corduroy which diversify your options.

It’s always a wonderful thing when your products you created are selling like hot cakes, and it generates into high revenue which is good for one’s bottom line both in business and personal especially, but it can be hard to step away from something that’s doing well, which Kristin Cavallari has a dilemma with in Thursday’s episode of “Very Cavallari” on E!.
